A MEGAMEDIA(TM) demo.
Before we became a game company of over 60 people, the original six of us created a demo CD, called simply, The Monolith CD. This CD contained both PC software and CD audio tracks. Some of my fondest Monolith memories are preserved in this CD.
The most creative group of people of our time...

Very interesting artifact
"The most creative group of people of our time..."
Well, I'd put that up for debate considering that all the games they have produced for the past 8 years were extremely generic, bodering on bland. And even before that, nothing was particularly Earth-shattering—there are countless writers and musicians and directors who have done far more tremendous things than most any video game creator in the history of the medium.
But Monolith were definitely an innovative and creative force in the late 1990s and early 2000s, so this is a fantastic look back, thank you for archiving it. Apart from a some music tracks and video clips, it contains a few interactive demo programs for both DOS and Windows, which for the most part run much too fast on modern systems. It is interesting to read about the "MegaMedia" fad that they thought out, which didn't particularly take. A very nostalgic artifact of the kind of pre-dotcom "multimedia" frenzy that everyone thought was the future but nobody talks about anymore.
